Did Blizzard Hide a New Character Hint At the End of an Overwatch Developer Video?

But what's their connection to Reaper?


Overwatch fans over on the game’s Reddit page believe that they have discovered a hint for the games next free to download hero at the end of a video that Blizzard recently posted showing off the game’s first downloadable hero, Ana.

The hints can be found at the end of a particular Ana Dev Update video where the video ends with “a few seocnds of black followed by a beep and some TV interference” to quote Reddit user colonelcactus. Here’s the video in question:

As colonelcactus pointed out, this is the only video to end like this so naturally, some fans though that there may be a hint about Overwatch’s’ next hero hidden somewhere.

The message was later decoded by another fan using an online bar code reader which resulted in the materials needed to create a QR code. According to the user who broke the code, QR code reads the following “¿Estuvo eso facilito? Ahora que tengo su atención, déjenme se las pongo más difícil”, which when translated into English seems to reads “Was that easy? Now that I have your attention, let’s make things more difficult.”

Some Overwatch fans think that this message links to a yet to be announced hero called Sombre who has been hinted to multiple times in-game. Reaper even has an unused line where he says “Where’s Sombra when you need her?” Could Sombra have something to do with how Reaper received his strange powers in the first place?
